Power Macintosh 5500/275

The Power Macintosh 5500 is a personal computer designed, manufactured, and sold by Apple Computer, Inc. from February 1997 to March 1998.

Like the Power Macintosh 5260 and 5400 that preceded it, the 5500 is an "all-in-one" design, built around a PowerPC 603ev processor operating at 225, 250 or 275 megahertz (MHz).

Apple originally produced the Power Macintosh 5500 for the educational market as a replacement for the previous year's Power Macintosh 5400. It is the last All-In-One from Apple to be housed in the Power Macintosh 5200 LC's form-factor; its replacement, the Power Macintosh G3 All-In-One, introduced a significantly different design.
